phase of the case begins. the very complex legal process. an obama administration official telling nbc news tsarnaev will not be given a miranda warning when he's physically able to be interrogated after receiving medical treatment. instead, the official says the government will invoke a legal rule known as the public safety exception. that will allow investigators to question tsarnaev without first advising him of his right to remain silent and be afforded legal counsel. president obama used his weekly address today to praise law enforcement and those involved in tracking tsarnaev down. >> americans refused to be terrorized. ultimately, that's what we'll remember from this week. that's what will remain, the stories of heroism and kindness, resolve and resilience, generosity, and love. >> authorities caught up with the suspect after a tip from a watertown resident. he was hiding in a boat parked outside a home. he is now in a boston hospital and nbc's ron allen is joining me from there. ron, with a good afternoon to you, let's get the very latest on his condition. are you getting word

has only just begun, and the decision by the obama administration, not to designate him as an enemy combatant is upsetting several republicans. >> i have been informed that the obama administration has indicated this suspect in boston will not be treated as enemy combatant. i strongly disagree with the obama administration's decision to rule out enemy combatant status for this suspect at this time. >> let's bring in our senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin, joining us from new york. can or should a u.s. citizen be formally given this enemy combatant status? what does the law say? >> every terrorist suspect arrested in the united states, since the first world trade center bombing in 1993 has been treated in the criminal justice system, not as an enemy combatant. standard operating procedure. frankly, the whole status of enemy combatant remains ambiguous in the legal system. the prisoners in guantanamo bay remain in legal limbo. by treating them as criminal suspects, the obama administration is avoiding all kinds of risks and simply acting as the bush administration has in the past and

were victimized earlier today. as president barack obama mentioned, this is a moment where we're not democrats or independents or republicans, we're americans. we're not blacks or whites, latinos or asians, we're one today and as representatives from 43 different congressional districts across the country, the c.b.c. would like simply to extend our thoughts and prayers to the family members of those who died earlier today. we want to extend our great sympathies and our best wishes to those who were victimized and we are praying for full and complete recovery. we also, of course, want to extend our thanks and our heart felt gratitude to those first responders who once again demonstrated courage under fire and bravery in the face of dangers that were seen and unforeseen. now, america is a great country, and whatever is revealed about the attacks that took place earlier today, we're confident that we have the resolve to continue to move rward as strong as we always have been. in the aftermath of pearl harbor and throughout world war ii, americans demonstrated great resolve. durin
is to kill them overseas before they get here. i think president obama has been doing a pretty good job of that in the past few years. immigration is a very complex issue. that is my basic take on that. the: colonel larsen, one of earlier caller talked about the family of the suspect. the ap said it talk to the father of the two young men. the father of the suspects in the boston marathon bombing said his son on a list is a smart and accomplished young man. smart on the loose is a and accomplished young man. that is from the associated press, who reached the father of the two suspects in russia. call is from it in maryland. would like to i thank the colonel for his service. i wanted to ask the -- asking a question concerning terrorism and its definition. i believe political terrorism, of course, is widely known and accepted. but there is also secular terrorism, as shown in bosnia, alsoxample, and probably institutionalized care as we experienced in nazi germany and bosnia recently. i would like your comments on that. guest: i have been doing some work with survivors of the siege and the
a militant plan in the chechnya area. >>> president obama is receiving constant updates on the boston bombing case and potential terrorist links. the white house released a picture of the president getting briefed by the national security adviser. yesterday, the president met in the white house situation room for 90 minutes with security officials, including the attorney general and fbi director. joe biden joined in by video conferencing. >>> people living in bethlehem honored victims of the boston marathon during the first marathon. the race coincided with the london marathon. many of the runners wore t- shirts honoring the victims. this man wore a shirt showing the face of the youngest victim, martin richard, he was only eight years old. we'll have more on the london marathon coming up at 8:30. the community comes together to help pay for the medical costs of an 11-year-old wounded in the boston bombings. how much a weekend fundraiser brought in and the latest on aaron hern's condition. for more on the boston bombings, you can go to our website. >>> all right. now we are turning now to info
is former secret service agent for barack obama, dan is with us. welcome back. one of the things i was thinking of today, and i know this is your area of expertise and having worked at the secret service and having protected barack obama, do you think as a matter of course being the boston marathon that they had bomb sniffing dogs prayer to the marathon? >> right, but we are assuming the bombs were placed there today when the security cordon was set up. but what if you got in before it was set up and pro placed an explosive. pennsylvania avenue doesn't have any devices but when he walked down we had the entire cordon set up. so don't assume they were put there today. >> what would be the process, then, as it relates to law enforcement when they have a big crowd like this? i assume you have to have bomb sniffing dogs going in and out at some point, right? >> right. but what we would do in the secret service and i don't know how practical for an event like the marathon, you have to clean the area out first. sweep it with the dogs, the explosives personnel from the military would look
with the surrounding towns, people told to stay home and businesses not to open. as we also told you, president obama has been brought up to speed on what's been going on here in the boston area with so many developments. we want to go to brianna kieler now at the white house. >> hi, john and jake. we understand from the white house official that president obama was briefed overnight by his homeland security and counter terrorism adviser, lisa monaco. this has been happening overnight since the bombings in boston, but again he was briefed overnight to be brought up-to-date on the events happening there in watertown. we are told by a white house official we are still waiting to see if perhaps as this is very much a developing situation, the president as you know, it would not be likely that he would come out and make some sort of statement until all of the facts are kind of determined here. obviously, this is very much a developing situation. so we'll be keeping you up-to-date on exactly president obama's briefings. very likely what's going to happen later this morning is he'll be briefed not only by
regularly tell me, if obama would just pick up the phone and talk to kim jong un, we could solve this whole thing. >> reporter: all parties know north korea is vulnerable. it desperately needs a good harvest to feed its 25 million people - including millions who may be on the brink of starvation. that's why beijing won't ratchet up the pressure. >> the chinese don't want to cause a regime collapse. that's their number 1 nightmare scenario, really. so, by cutting off aid to that extent, they would essentially be bringing on the one thing they're trying most to avoid. >> reporter: in coming days, north korea's military will be pressed into service in their tens, or even hundreds of thousands to help with spring planting - meantime, hundreds of thousands of south koreans not the military, but ordinary people, are coming out to celebrate the springor cherry blossom festival in the capital city of seoul. people here are tired of pyongyang's threats. for them, talks for the sake of talks are a waste of time. south korean president park guen hye has warned as much. but what would take the place of
a statement saying'' mack wheat remaining under threat from radical islam we hope the obama administration seriously considered the enemy combat and option. what that means is this suspect it could go to the military court system but the president signaled the opposite to read between the lines that he believes what distinguishes america is the several civilian court system to uphold our values. he is getting pressure to name him the enemy combat in to that with the two other things he is signaling if he survives go through the civilian court system. >> it appears he will@ survive for cut end henry live. the last time we heard from the authorities at the 6:00 eastern time the news was not good at all and they told the people they cannot find a second suspect and they were lifting the shelter employs order but there were a lot of questions were the investigation was going bad minutes later there was the call of the suspect. are corresponded has the news and the end of this was incredibly tends. >> and it happened right here this building right after those state troopers this is where it fin
complement president obama's request and reflect the undisputable fact that statehood won the november referendum. puerto rico stands in a far different place today than it did six months ago. an historic referendum was held. the president responded to the results and congress now has the responsibility to act. those who seek the equality and progress for puerto rico are on the forward march while those who support the same old status quote are in retreat would drive the debate, while they merely react to the debate. and in the end mindful that the arc of history's long bends the justice, i am confident we will prevail. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from california, ms. lee, for ive minutes. ms. lee: thank you, mr. speaker. let me first send my thoughts and prayers to the city of boston, families and friends and all those touched by yesterday's horrific tragedy. an incredible strength on full display in the streets of boston when untold numbers of people, the police, firefighters, volunteers, r
, that was wrong. then president obama comes in and goes to cairo and says let's start new. let's pull out of iraq. we're going to be leaving afghanistan. now what do you think of us? that doesn't seem to be resonating well either. what makes these people happy? >> what moves made them delirious is the fact that we not only started two wars in afghanistan, but we lost both of them. no matter how the american president dresses it up, in the muslim world they have now defeated the superpower. >>brian: we left too early in iraq. we were setting up a democracy in iraq. >> there is no democracy, brian. in fact, you hit on the biggest problem we have and that is mr. obama and mrs. clinton's big thing. the more we push democracy, the more we're waging warped civilizations against islam. as long as a major foreign policy goal is pushing democracy, pushing foreign rights on people who don't want part of them, they're going to fight you. as long as you support the israelis, the arab tyranny in saudi arabia and elsewhere on the peninsula, people are going to fight you. >>brian: if you support their governmen
house and pentagon. president obama said those responsible will feel the full weight of justice. >> we will find out who did this and why p they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> reporter: this evening in boston authorities offered few new details. >> the fbi is taking the lead in this invest sgags. it's criminal that is a potential terrorist investigation. comfortable racing weather for the runners ready to compete for personal glory or just the honor of it all. it's usually a joyous day off. today someone stole all of that killing and maiming innocence who can never forget the day they ran when the finish line was strong with crime scene tape. >> mat has made his way up to boston. good evening. >> reporter: those patients are in extremely good hands. this is a well regarded hospital. it's the oldest one level one trauma. i'm joined by three eyewitnesss to this tragedy. i'm happy to say they were not among the injured. thank you for joining us. i know you were making your way around the finish line. how close did you
's what we all want to moment dan was a u.s. secret service agent who walked ahead of president obama during "the nine" inaugural parade and he knows what it takes to secure this type of situation. dan, that's what people want to know. how? how could this happen? >> good question. i think everybody is assuming, though, that these bombs were planted yesterday when they, in fact exploded and the event happened. that may not be the case. i don't know that for a fact, but what concerned the secret service and me specifically when i was there and we would organize the parade route for the president was not a device trying to come in that day. we knew we would be able to intercept it, but a device that was preplanted. and that, unfortunately, may be an avenue they may have to pursue investigatively. >> brian: from what you can tell, from what we know, this saudi national is a person of interest in the hospital right now who we've gone through his apartment. how unusual is it for the bomber, who is not a homicide bomber, to be a victim? evidently he had burns on him and smelled like gun powd

stopped a lot of it. our intelligence gather is much better now under both bush and obama than it was before 9/11. so we have thwarted a lot of this. but if they decide to do things like this, this is very, very hard. >> this could become israel? >> yeah. i mean, who has better defenses than israel? and they were only able to prevent a certain number of them. if these people are willing to do this, this is going to be very hard to prevent. >> mr. mayor, thank you so much. >> i still have a lot of questions tonight, who did this, how did they do this, can this happen anywhere? we will get all the questions and delve into them deeply. also we have the bomb experts. they will explain the pressure cooker bomb, the nails put in and the bbs, the pellets, and we will get to the investigative side of it as this edition of "hannity" continues. thank you for being with us. ♪ so now i can help make this a great block party. ♪ [ male announce ] advair is clinically proven to help significantly improve lung function. unlike most copd medications, advair contains both an anti-inflammator

thoughts on that? >> i don't think that that's going to happen. the obama administration has been clear, they're distancing themselves from that concept. you've got an american citizen. we don't have dzhokhar going abroad in training. his brother apparently did. but dzhokhar didn't. and dzhokhar is going to be tried as an individual on his own right. so i think the chances of this ending up as an enemy combatant are very small. >> but you've heard that because of high security concerns they would like to question him for a period of time, albeit briefly, before mirandizing him and reading him his rights. how long can they do that? how far can they go with those questions? >> well, that's a very good question. because the longer we go, the less likely there is that there's a public security issue here. one thing that the defense will certainly raise is the remarks of the police chief of watertown in which he said these are the only two guys, we're done. now the argument from the government will be well, he wasn't informed. but, you know, that's going to be played out pretty significantly
